not sure how on fire it would be right now, those prices could probably cool off the excitement pretty fast.

Imagine the outrage if MLB charged the same prices for their spring training games as the regular season. The main reason they cannot even attempt it is due to the fact the games are in Florida and Arizona, not the home markets.
Not to mention that they have 81 regular season home games as compared to 8.

Alas, it is SOP for all 32 NFL franchises.

Does anyone have a time other than Thursday at 1. Just paranoid that everyone got the same time since someone else said they had the same time as well.

Season Tickets Since 1978

Default Season Tickets

We've had season tickets since 1978, with as high as 24 seats and over the last few years we've had 14 as a business account. Has anyone else heard anything as to what they are doing in regard to higher business seat totals than the standard 4? The email says business accounts are "established"... not sure what that means. I would expect it to be as before, especially with 39 years of faithful Chargers support!

Considering that 81 games fact, MLB is much more cost effective than the NFL. If desired, the cheapest NY Yankees ticket is $11 for the bleachers, so one could attend all the home games for about $900. Even taking better seats, with a median price of $53 (most seats range between $11-$95), it would cost $4,293 for all 81. Really not that bad these days.

For those who purchase full season tickets, the extra 17 ST games probably wouldn't make a dent in their budget.

If the exhibition games were actually played (will never happen, granted) in the home markets, I'm sure MLB would have higher prices, and compel season ticket holders to ante up for those.

But as it is, I know the Yankees sell out all their ST games, and they get a decent buck for tickets in Tampa.

i just have regular season tix, i did not know that business accounts existed. i would suggest calling the chargers if you have not done so already. my guess is that you are not going to find someone on the board for that specific an issue. best of luck.
